Iconic Jams

Prince might have changed his name to a symbol and sold millions of records, but he never had his own circus. At least not until now. Purple: A Circus Tribute to Prince is a showcase of acrobatics and aerial skills set to the former symbol's best jams. "Raspberry Beret," "Kiss," "Musicology," and "1999" all make appearances. The show is being held as a fundraiser for The Uncle Junior Project, a documentary about the history of African-American circus performers. Given the fact that Prince is known for heavily-sexualized lyrics and flamboyant dancing, expect Purple to be as sexy as a center-ring whip crack, and wilder than a tiger set loose on the dancefloor. It features performances from producer and aerialist Veronica Blair, contortionist Haley Rose Viloria, Circus Space graduate Susan Voyticky, and the Circus Center Flyers, among others.
